8:22 pm
recent letter to grow. i have learned firsthand that the prison administration's greatest perceived threat is mine freedom of speech. now earlier i spoke with kevin this fellow blogger and fire dog lake. first and someone even bureau of prisons classified carry out these letters is dangerous. biden is dangerous but the letters that fire juggling dot com has been publishing it in the middle of last year's event was the idea is that dangerous to the prison facility in colorado pennsylvania because of his access to the press. i guess they were good publicity. he obtained documents showing that classified for central in the monitoring and esteem that they scrutinize and more happily than other prisoners inside the facility right his latest latter half of outbreaks he said. the deal he is afraid of knowing what the prison system is really
8:23 pm
like they're afraid of the disclosure that they don't bother to follow their own rules are framed and you'll learn that they can violate the law suite into maybe he just examples of how carry out those letters illustrate this what are some of the regulations that were being violated. boy is talking about was specifically how supporters of syriac to have been emailing him letters of support trying to correspond with them. and what made that having happened is that lenders are opened. and then those letters are sent back to that. it appears that the one person had escaped the killer shot and the letter came back to them and yet no idea that i have to react. he's having his letters didn't die to happen even being notified of the fact that the warden of the soap body is rejecting these letters. we've also been instances where people mail is being opened and i
8:24 pm
guess kerry doesn't get a chance to appropriately challenge to us if it's legal or special middle east coast to be able to watch for an open network and inspect it and make sure that it's not threatening to the facility and i have to happen i don't think i'm the only thing is the email the email service and it takes awhile to send emails i receive them. but apparently to use it anymore send emails should find this conversation. granted i did the opposite of the staffers inside them and they talk about an upcoming kavanagh said. and something to him about something is why etc posted something. you have about identity might have one example is considering going to do business or do some work in south africa and i said well i've someone came up to me and said to be a great person might be talking about doing business in south africa and the thought that was kind of freaky him until he decided to refrain from
8:25 pm
talking about. you know. also something peculiar is that his mail was only delivered on monday is which i find very interesting was the rationale and then relegated on the mail just one day the week the rationale would probably be the same for all the other violations of its rights to the fact that you have write access to the press. maybe they just want to take their time getting letters and correspondence. they don't want to inconvenience the fact that he is someone who is very popular right now chris and erica goes on yawn and say that he has more rights than anybody else still be in the process is actually good and i am is right it's great. his obvious thirtieth ladder before all this went down before he stopped communicating. carry on to explain that he was forced to sign and nemo from the us justice department that stated he was legally obligated to clear everything he brought with the cis publication review board. it turned out he was actually legally obligated to do
8:26 pm
anything. the economy and intimidated and essentially into signing that now now yes according to lawyer this is a legal and constitutional. you submit your prison letters to the cis pre publication review board. they have nothing to do this time is an intelligence officer. they also would happen to carry a clear and essentially he sat down and ordered decided to hand over her. that said it would be sending the letters that were giving them to ca for a few of them for publishing. and actually it seems he has been doing this we should be required to show he has been sending letters you see i set one in december. he published a copy of it. notice that the impact that they have received this
8:27 pm
letter. and then in a span of a lot. they proved that. i think that i haven't gone back to look at the posting was put out by the beach at that. that december letter we did. i got leaked onto the middle of the week of january i'm just getting it approved. and as i understand it and carry out the submitted a freedom of information act request for himself. i was last year was revealed in that way request revelation within a vacuum was designated center of the main monitor at which i am telling you you're supposed to be notified of the market. this designation an important letter i read it correctly. you're happy with. that's right. the two hundred and fifty seven pages that i was able to obtain from that there were five that were marked out for yet he does and does not really sticking me to have any idea what's being censored in those five pages that they chose not to reveal the hand
8:28 pm
the year that somehow you to figure out i'm at me because it is a journey like some kind of request for that information was awesome to meet you at the zoo. the fact that this person would be representing him legally. so i don't know. the mermaids singing louder. that's the way of accessing the contents of those agents otherwise he would have enabled this right the passages from time as he does in the latter. so i don't think they managed actually would hold it hold any information. and what they wanted to share. what made you so much for all of your insight on this very important case to the stall of blogger at fire dog lake i was a time when doctors find something in your teens it's not me. but now researchers have found dna in the teeth of two germans killed fifteen hundred years ago and adjusting in play and use those great things to recreate the bacteria. what are they find well at the very same bacteria that
